Found in the Washington Times:
The Dixie Chicks will be interested to learn that Live Aid founder Bob Geldof "shocked" the international aid community, as Reuters wrote yesterday, by praising President Bush as one of Africa's best friends in the fight against AIDS and famine.
    "You'll think I'm off my trolley when I say this, but the Bush administration is the most radical - in a positive sense - in the approach to Africa since [John F.] Kennedy," Mr. Geldof said during a visit to famine-ravaged Ethiopia.
    The Irish musician and activist said Mr. Bush's predecessor, Bill Clinton, might have talked passionately about Africa, but he did very little to help the continent.
It sees that while Billy Jeff Clinton taked a lot about doing good, President George W. Bush actually gets the job done.
